Anti-dengue operations at sago units conducted

                                          With the onset of monsoon, officials from Tamil Nadu Food Safety and Drug Administration Department have taken up anti-dengue operations in sago units across the district.
A team led by District Designated Officer T. Tamil Selvan along with food inspectors and supervisors during their raids in sago units found many obsolete tyres dumped on the premises.
Officials immediately asked the workers to drain the water from the tyres as they were found to be breeding place for mosquitoes.
The unit owners were also asked to clean the water storage containers regularly and also remove all unwanted materials on the premises. Broken plastic materials dumped in many sago units were also removed during the inspection.
Officials also distributed pamphlets containing awareness messages on preventing dengue. Unit owners were also asked to whitewash the tanks periodically and take all precautionary measures for the monsoon.
